Goodwood Revival is delighted to announce that long-term friend of Goodwood motorsport, Jenson Button, will make his historic racing debut at the event taking place on 17 - 19 September at the Goodwood Motor Circuit.

On the Friday evening of the Revival weekend, Button will take part in the Stirling Moss Memorial Trophy. Formerly the Kinrara Trophy and first held in 2016, the sunset race will see Ferrari 250 SWBs take on the likes of Aston Martin DB4GTs, AC Cobras and a host of early-60s GT racers. Button will be sharing the driving seat of a Jaguar E-type, prepared and run by RJN Motorsport, with Alex Buncombe.

The dynamic duo will be back in action on Sunday afternoon in the Royal Automobile Club TT Celebration, one of the most prestigious races in all of historic motorsport. The one-hour, two-driver event, will see the finest closed-cockpit cars go head-to-head, with Button and Buncombe competing in their 1963 AC Cobra. Originally a factory-prepared racer for Shelby American, the car is now prepped and run by DK Engineering. The race at 2.30pm will form part of ITV1’s live broadcast of the Goodwood Revival on Sunday 19 September.

Details of the confirmed Revival Race Schedule are available here, with further driver details due to be announced in the coming weeks.

About the Goodwood Revival
The Goodwood Revival is the world’s greatest historic motor race meeting, and the only sporting event of its kind to be staged entirely in a period theme. More than just an unrivalled weekend of historic racing, it is a whimsical step back in time; an immersive celebration of a less disposable world, where “make do and mend” was a way of life rather than a casual slogan.

The Revival is, at its heart, a celebration of craftsmanship and sustainability, from an age when possessions were made to last and be cherished. It promotes a thoroughly modern ethos – to “reduce, reuse, repair, restore and recycle” – in the most authentic way possible. All the cars are original, having been lovingly maintained since new, many of the outfits have been handed down through generations, and even the retailers specialise in pre-owned artefacts – everything from clothes and accessories to automobilia and books.

It is, proudly, the world’s biggest and most glamorous second-hand event.
